Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded by 1959, and we understand it is still open.

St Paul's Methodist Church, in Dronfield, belongs to the Churches Together in Dronfield and District group, and their website tells us that it was opened in the late 1950s to serve the Holmesdale Estate, and replaced an existing building on Lea Road, originally Primitive Methodist, but now demolished.

It is an elegant "futuristic" building, built of stone, with eight "bays", in 2 groups of 5 and 3, on either side of a central entrance, and a slender spire, in the centre of the roof-line. It is situated on the south-west corner of the junction of Green Lane with Snape Hill Lane, and from above, it appears that the rear facade echoes the bays at the front, but also has the addition of a series of extensions.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 25th September 1959 (p.6071) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named ST. PAUL'S METHODIST CHURCH, Green Lane, Dronfield, in the registration district of Chesterfield, Derbyshire, was on 22nd September 1959, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 23rd September 1959.

Denomination

Now or formerly Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
